Abstract or Summary:
The login procedure is formulated as a test of hypothesis. The formulation is used to show that the commonly used procedure provides valuable information to a hacker which enables him to use trial and error to gain access to a computer system. A general method for reducing this information is described and its properties studied. The method introduces randomness into the procedure, thus denying a hacker the luxury of trial and error.
